Suns' Derrick Jones: Will start at small forward Sunday
Jones will start at small forward Sunday against the Pistons, Detroit radio play-by-play broadcaster Mark Champion reports.
Devin Booker is dealing with an ankle injury and has been ruled out Sunday, and with the team lacking in other guard options off bench aside from the newly-signed Jarell Eddie, the Suns will use a bigger starting lineup featuring T.J. Warren and Jones on the wings. Jones should see a decent uptick in playing time while Booker, Ronnie Price (leg), Brandon Knight (back), Leandro Barbosa (illness), Dragan Bender (leg) and Eric Bledsoe (knee) are all out, but he's still not an especially enticing DFS option. In his previous two starts this season, Jones averaged 3.0 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.5 assists across 25.6 minutes.
